Who’s With Me?!

summit9

Thursday afternoon.

Boy, am I pumped after watching the Summit 9 live web stream this past week!!!  I am so grateful for such amazing conferences as this — and for the technology that allows you to be a part of them.  Although the breakout sessions were only for attendees, the main sessions were streamed live online (and, yes, this photo is me catching one at work… but alongside adoption and foster care, the conference is also about global initiatives and orphan care — absolutely related!!).

I watched several sessions online between Thursday and Friday, and I stalked I mean followed the #summit9 hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.  But as much I loved being able to keep up with what was happening and being shared at Summit 9, what I want to know is…

Who wants to go next year?!?!  Let’s make this happen!!!  (OK, so I probably need to run it by Trey first. :)  But how awesome would that be?!)

Thursday night.

I’m going to make this a short post (so you can browse the Summit website and check your schedules, of course… hehe).  But first I have to share with you the story of a family who was interviewed during the Thursday evening general sessions.  This incredible family has a beautiful life and perspective that you will NOT want to miss.  Please check out the short video series (or at least the “Chapter One”/intro video) of the Wagner Family…  Just don’t watch it if you don’t want to adopt. ;)

“By the help of your God, return, hold fast to love and justice, and wait continually for your God.” ~Hosea 12:6

Friday morning.

{I also have to say that I LOVED hearing Bishop Martin from Possum Trot, Texas, speak on Friday a.m.!!!  He was awesome!  If the main sessions are being archived online after they have been streamed live, and I can find the link for that, I will be sure to share it.  In the meantime, there was a book written about this amazing small town that you can find on Amazon, and here’s a news article to check out, too.  Incredible story!!!}
